Hello Insurance,

I recently started using Lance and Brion's rods and so far I really like them. Both of them are very helpful so if you are looking for specific applications/rods then reach out to them, they would be more than happy to help.

The rods have a great look to them, they are light, and I really like the guide size they use.. I believe a size 6 for the first guide and then a size 5 all the way to the tip.

So far I really like the Zell Rowland spinner bait rod, and the 7'3" Heavy fast tip (dubbed the Frog rod).

Give them a try, I'm confident you will like.

PM me if you would like any more info from me.

I have been using their rods since they first started making them about 4 years ago. Lance and Brion have been great to deal with. All their rods are high quality and are backed by the best customer service out there. You cannot go wrong with either the Impluse series or the Energy series rods. Let me know if you have any more questions or just give them a call at 281-259-4437

I've been using them for almost a year, I appreciate the customer service and knowing these guys care about their product. I have a mix of both the Impulse and Energy rods. The 7'2 Energy Multi-Technique is sweet. Someone else mentioned the 7'3 HXF Frog Rod, I have three of them and love them for flipping and dragging a jig around. I like all of mine!

Awesome rods. By far my favorite rods I’ve ever used. Like the others say lightweight and sensitive. 7’3 frog rod may be my favorite rod I’ve ever used period. Great guys and great customer service on helping you figure out what you are looking for.

I have about 15 of them...regular series and Energy. I know Lance and Brion very well. They are stand up guys with a stand up company. The rods are excellent, the service is great. You'd be hard pressed to find a better rod for the value of their product. They back their product with great customer service.

I have been using the rods since they started making them. They are by far my favorite rods I have ever used and the customer
service is top notch. Both Lance and Brion are very helpful when it comes to rod selection. Give them a try and you wont regret it.

Update on Impulse. I contacted Lance and Brion at Impulse rods after lots of positive feedback on my first post so I made the trip to Magnolia to get a chance to see how the rods are made and how they felt and looked. I was so impressed with the little differences they do to make their rods stand out from the other brands. Great quality build with a proven blank! As far the owners you CAN'T find nicer and more knowledgeable guys to deal with. They are actually in the shop every day building the rods themselves and I believe that is what makes the difference in quality. I fished with just about every model so far and must say even more impressive! I would highly recommend if you are in the market for a new rod brand that you give them a look because they have a full line of models to choose from and are made in USA. You are welcome to PM me with any questions about rods or rod models.

I have only used a couple of models of Loomis in the past and they seemed very well made but they do not offer the full line of models that Impulse Rods do while using the same feeling blank. Loomis models seemed to be a much different feel and weight while Impulse feels the same in your hand but with different action. I do feel the Impulse rods quality control is awesome with the owners actually building the rods themselves compared to how Loomis is made in large quantity. Impulse uses Fugi reel seat that they trim shorter so that you can palm the reel and still touch the blank with your fingers. Also they use the best eyes you can buy and the bottom 2 eyes are double foot and the rest of the micros have a long foot so they can get a lot of wrap on them to keep them stable and from popping off like other brands have a problem with. I can say this if you put one in your hand you will be able to feel the quality right away. Also the Impulse rods are about half the retail price of Loomis rods.

Happy to hear you picked some up. Lance and Brion have treated me so well and I fish exclusively Impulse now. i've let guys fishing rods that cost more use them and they love them. You can't beat those rods.
